Labette Health celebrated the ribbon cutting and open house of the new ER facility today in Independence. ...

Had a great visit to Independence today to speak at the ribbon-cutting and celebrate the opening of the new Independence Healthcare Center emergency room. This modernized facility will deliver quality emergency and medical care to residents right in their own hometown. I appreciated CEO Brian Williams’s invitation to speak at the ribbon-cutting and the warm welcome from Mayor Fred Meier and members of the community. After this celebration, I toured the Fab Lab at Independence Community College. This creative space provides entrepreneurs and community members access to manufacturing and digital fabrication tools encouraging experimentation, creativity and the entrepreneurial mindset. Although it’s not an academic program, the Fab Lab does offer college students introductory training in electronics, robotics, welding, 3D printing, prototyping and more. Thank you to the dozen entrepreneurs I met at Fab-Lab and to Jim Correll and Tim Haynes of the Fab Lab for the tour, and for helping our state develop business entrepreneurs. I look forward to the Fab-Lab's upcoming "Community Boot Camp: How to Start a Fab-Lab From Ground Zero" in February.
